Two suspects were arrested with loads of TV screens, booze and diesel in Mangaung.
On 09 September 2022 at about 14:30, Mangaung Liquor and Second Hand Goods compliance team visited second hand goods shops and scrap metal places in Mangaung. While busy in Hamilton, members visited one workshop with trucks parked inside the business premises.
Upon inspection, members found a truckload of 139 units of 60 inch plasma screens and 32 units of 55 inch plasma screens worth an estimated R1,2 Million. The second truck was opened and members found pallets full of different expensive whiskies and vodkas worth an estimated R250 000. Behind the trucks members also found 20liter containers full of diesel and two large containers full of diesel petroleum worth an estimated R30 000
The two suspects aged 42 and 38 failed to provide police with proper documentation proving ownership or purchase thereof and were arrested for possession of suspected stolen goods as well as contravening the immigration act.
They will appear in the Bloemfontein magistrate court soon.
